Maroochydore through the photographic lens of Barbara J H

Updated on May 21, 2013

Barbara J H's view of Maroochydore

This is a Squidoo lens with a difference. Its sole purpose is enable you to see Maroochydore through the camera lens of Barbara J H, a local photographer. This unique perspective is designed to showcase not only Maroochydore but also Barbara's photography. Barbara J H has the rare skill of being able to capture the essence of what she photographs. I came across her photos on Flickr when I was developing my Squidoo lens on Maroochydore and I wanted to share the beauty of her photography with a wider audience.

With Barbara's agreement, I am building a number of Squidoo lenses to showcase her work. This first lens focuses on her home town of Maroochydore. The lens is presented as a photographic art exhibition - stop and have a closer look at what takes your fancy. Enjoy your journey through this Photographic Art Gallery. All photos are hyper-linked to Barbara's work on Flickr.

Many people capture sunrises but their focus is on the sun. Barbara J H captures the spirit of the location as well. She uses the sunrise as background lighting to envelop her subject in light. Have a look at how Barbara communicates the stillness of the Maroochy River.

Barbara states on her Flickr profile, "My goal is to one day find the time to learn more about photo editing, and progress beyond the basics...one day." Her friends think she is a "PRO" - very professional in her photographic art. What do you think - were you transported?

      I have SO thoroughly enjoyed my visit today ... and it was a PERFECT pick as I finish out my day on Squidoo. Thank you for introducing me to the beauty of Barbara's photography -- is she sharing her work through Zazzle on mousepads?

      Hello Barbara from Brasil, I am enthralled by your photos - can't pick a favoutite but loved the pelicanpassing by - it was such a powerful and gentle reminder of the Aust we have left. You might like to photograph Brasil; one day - vibrant, noisy, busy and brilliant, a real contrast to your wonderful compositions. Keep it up, I love it!! Mike
